Most amazing season I've watched so far.
The inclusion of the alternate ending was most appreciated, however I am aware of the fact that UK VHS releases had more content in certain episodes that aren't included in the US version. Strange.
24's First Season is regarded by many to be the gold standard for 24, and it amazes me how the lead characters (Kiefer Sutherland and Carlos Bernard primarily) have kept a constant performance from the beginning of 24 to its current season. Moreover, the quality of this season, for it being the uncertain first season of any show is amazing. Powerful storytelling, well-done cliche's (not an easy thing to pull off), and 24's greatest quality - character development. It has certainly stood the test of time almost a decade later.Read full review...
24's first season was one of its best, introducing and developingsome of the show's most memorable characters, all while keeping viewers guessing about their intentions. The basis of the plot, that someone intends to assassinate a black presidential candidate on the day of the California primary, was a more imaginative premise than the "terrorist threat of the day" basis of later seasons. The plot takes some interesting twists and eventually different parts of the puzzle start to connect, but discussion of the story is best left to those who've already seen the season.
What was best about this season was the characters. No later season paralleled season one in terms of interesting, developed characters. From the ruthless villain, Gaines, to CTU agents like Tony and Mason whose motives and loyalty to Jack are unclear, this season did the best character work of the series. Even lead actor Kiefer Sutherland made the most of Jack Bauer this season. The cold, emotionless Jack of later seasons is far less compelling than the fragmented, almost fragile Jack from season one. Also worthy of mention is Dennis Haysbert as David Palmer, the morally irreproachable presidential candidate who has to deal with the simultaneous pressures of his family, his campaign, and the attempts on his life.
Overall this is a fine introduction to 24, and the characters really make the story. Developed, personal, and each carrying a past, they do a fantastic job of driving the plot forward, and the actors really pull off the scenes in which their characters turn out to not to be what they seem. No other season of 24, with the possible exception of season two, kept me on the edge of my seat wanting more as much as this one.Read full review...
24 (Twenty Four) Season One
This is a great show. Kiefer Sutherland is Jack Bauer a agent in the Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU). Each season, a new day with new terrorist plots, each episode, one hour closer to discovering what the terrorist are up to, and only one man, one agency can stop them..... Sound good? BUY THE SEASONS. I just have to warn you it is very addictive cause it is a terrific show. In this season Jack has to stop the assassination of a presidential candidate and find his kidnapped daughter. What will the next 24 hours hold?Read full review...
DO YOU KNOW JACK?
Season on is Just the Beginning. Jack is introduced and from there, you are hooked. As an Adult, this is an awesome series, but beware that children are not exposed to this. It is pretty rough at times.
With frequent gunplay, hand-to-hand combat, explosions, high-speed chases, double-crosses, deception, and some sexual content, again 24 is definitely not for kids. Some teens may be able to handle the violence, but while Jack is the good guy in the show, he isn't a role model by any means. With its breathless pace, moral dilemmas galore, and an innovative format, 24 is one of the most exciting shows for adults on television today. (A word of warning: 24 is expressly designed to be addictive, so if parents don't want their teens watching all 24 episodes, they probably shouldn't let them watch one.)Read full review...
Once you become addicted , quitting smoking is easier!!
Once you become addicted, quitting smoking is easier than breaking the 24 habit. It get’s in your veins, your heart starts pumping, you don’t sleep for day’s, and your neighbors start to worry about you because you haven’t left the house in day’s ,you don’t answer the phone … and then you finish the series .. Ok I’m good for another year.
24 is the most riveting, intense TV series I've ever experienced. The very timeline of this series put’s a refreshing twist like no other, with everything in real time this storyline comes at you in numerous directions and ties it all together brilliantly. I couldn’t be more on the edge of my seat if I were sitting on a razor while watching this show.
I actually will not watch an episode on TV and wait until the Season DVD has been released for the mere fact that I can not wait a week to see what happens next. When a new season is released on DVD in stores, I’m like a child the night before Christmas.I finished watching season 4 in January and I'm starting to get the itch for 5.
Kiefer Sutherland has taken Jack Bowers role to new-found heights with every new season.
I will warn you that after experiencing this show, others just don’t hold a candle and you have become a 24 junkie waiting for next week’s episode or running to the store for a seasonal DVD release.Read full review...
Can't Stop Watching!
The writing, acting and directing is second to no other show on Network television. In fact, this is a show on a par with HBO dramas like The Sopranos, The Wire and Six Feet Under.
I've never been a big Kiefer Sutherland fan in the past but he's terrific in the role of Jack Bower, Director of the Counter Terrorism Unit. Surrounding cast members are also great.
I don't know what's going to happen (thankfully, no one tipped me off) so I'm on the edge of my seat every episode. Interestingly, even though my wife knows what's going to happen, she's still on the edge of her seat watching! I'm lamenting what life will be like after I've watched all the episodes.Read full review...
